The day after we got back from vacation was a busy day, but so very special. It started out around lunch time, when I headed up to my friend Becky’s mom’s house. Her husband Doug’s daughter-in-law and four grandchildren were in town for the first time ever, meeting as much of Becky’s family as they could before heading to Johnson City to spend the week with Becky & Doug there. I was thrilled when she texted & asked if I could stop by to meet them, too. They are a beautiful family, and I know getting to spend such an extended time with them was just a precious experience for them all.
When I left Maude’s house, I headed straight to an open house that the Dubiski’s hosted, to introduce our church family to Susanna Hope Martin, who is our associate preacher Drew, his wife Grace, and their little ones Anna Grace and Esther Joy’s new baby. She is absolutely beautiful, and I loved getting a chance to visit at least a little bit with Grace that day. It was wonderful having such special events going on to ease me back into post-vacation life 🙂
